One of my guilty pleasures from the world of 80’s horror was the movie Terror In The Aisles – a feature film documentary filled with a compilation of clips from some of your favorite horror movies that were released prior to this 1984 release date. Oh, and it was hosted by Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen! It also sported a sweet poster to boot, and speaking of sweet…..check out this promotional rubber skull that I saw pop up on eBay:
I’m not even going to bother lying. I want that thing. Do I want it for $50 though? Therein lies the question going through my mind as I type this. Regardless of the price, it’s kind of a cool piece of 80’s horror history – and something that you could proudly display as well. It measures about 8″ X 5″ and looks to be in overall good condition. If you are interested in knowing more about this promotional rubber skull from Terror In The Aisles, then head on over HERE. If you haven’t seen the movie btw, I recommend it because it’s a good time and you get to see Donald Pleasance!
If you’ve seen the 2005 French horror movie High Tension, then chances are that you either LOVE it or HATE it – all primarily based on the twist that comes in the end. It’s a twisty twist and seems to divide most High Tension watchers. Me myself, I loved it. And because I loved it, I was pretty stoked to see these promotional items on eBay this week!
High Tension matches and a keychain! Not exactly groundbreaking, but still pretty cool nonetheless. The ‘barbed wire bat’ keychain is symbolic and not for anything to do with Negan from The Walking Dead. Now, if you are a High Tension fan like me then you might want to head on over to the eBay link HERE and contemplate if you need some matches for anything. The price ($25) is a tad rich for my blood, but there’s always a chance that the seller will come down with the price. Now excuse me while I go put on the song ‘New Born‘ by Muse and think about any exes of mine who did me wrong…….
Even though today is the 30th anniversary of A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, I’m going to go against the grain and do a post about A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge! Well, more specifically a little moment that doesn’t get talked about much. No, not Jesse dancing in his room – but the moment when his little sister is eating a box of Fu Man Chews cereal and playing with the toy fingernails that are inside.
Have you ever watched that part of the movie and thought to yourself “Hmmmm…..I really wish I could own a replica box of Fu Man Chews!“. Well……..now you can! And how about a bonus replica of the toy fingernails too?
Ok, I will have to admit that this is pretty cool. Especially since it comes with the fingernails too. Now – if you want to try and get your grubby hands on this, you can do so on eBay right HERE. If you’re located in the US, the shipping is a bit of a letdown – but in the end you’ll definitely probably be the only one in your crew with a replica box of Fu Man Chews cereal. Now here’s the scene of Jesse dancing just for diehard Jesse dancing fans out there who just can’t get enough.
I have a confession to make right now: I have some food stuck in my teeth. I know it might be a hard confession to comprehend, but it’s true. And I also have another confession: I kinda like Saw III. It might be one of my favorites in the ongoing Saw franchise. That might be just as hard to comprehend. Now if only I could combine my two confessions and get this damn food out from in between my teeth……..
Oh my stars! Today’s my lucky day! Yes, that is actually some promotional dental floss released in correspondence with the Saw III movie. And it’s complete with the hilarious tagline “Opening Wide This Halloween“. Now, the good news is that a seller on eBay is letting this go to one lucky bidder. The bad news is that it might be the most expensive dental floss you ever bought because it will set you back about $20. If you want to check out the listing and more pics, then head on over HERE. Or if you just want to sit there with food in your teeth like me, then you can do that as well.
Ho-Ho-Ho!! Santa isn’t done bringing you presents yet! And man oh man, do I have good news for any of you little boys and girls out there that were asking for a promotional tool kit from the 2008 killer plant movie, The Ruins!
That’s right – everything you need to fend off those pesky plant vines that try to burrow into your body and under your skin and make you horribly disfigure yourself to try and get them out: A compass! A flashlight! And something that kind of looks like a switchblade! Truth be told, I kind of admire The Ruins and it’s one of the only horror movies that makes me “squirm”. If you want to own this ultra-rare promotional tool kit from the movie, then head on over to the eBay listing HERE and either ‘Buy It Now’ or ‘Make An Offer’. You’ll be glad you have this the next time a vine is rubbing up next to you trying to make a move.
I have found myself falling into this collector ‘pin craze’ that’s been going on lately (thanks in large part to Creepy Company), so because of that I also find myself searching eBay from random promotional pins from yesteryear. And upon a recent search……I found this!
Truth be told, I am a Tales From The Crypt junkie. I love anything and everything that has to do with the comics, the show, and The Cryptkeeper. And the movie Demon Knight might be one of my favorite ‘fun’ horror movies ever. Sooooooo – not a huge surprise that my trigger finger is itchy to snatch up this pin off of eBay. But before I do, I am going to give you the reader the chance to snatch it up before me because that’s the kind of guy I am. I care about the horror people. So, if you would like to grab it like a rabbit, then head on over to the listing HERE and it can be yours for less than $10 (including shipping). Enjoy, boys and ghouls!
I was just saying to myself the other day that magnifying glasses are a very underrated item in the world today. How else are we supposed to read fine print?!?! I guess a pair of glasses or some contacts would work, but what if it’s really super small and what if I want something that is also affiliated with a cult horror movie? Oh if only there was a magnifying glass available on eBay from a 1985 horror/sci-fi movie directed by Tobe Hooper………….
Oh my lucky horror stars! Is that? Could it be? It is! Putting the magnifying glass game to shame is an actual promotional magnifying glass from the 1985 movie Lifeforce. It looks as though it was given to video stores in promotion for the VHS release. Aside from the boobs that were in the movie, there were actually some cool vampires too and Lifeforce is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. But mostly for the boobs. If you’re feeling especially nostalgic and want to own this rare magnifying glass so you can read your funnies on Sunday morning, then head over to the eBay listing HERE. Yikes – $55? Really, random eBay seller? Well, maybe the price will lower. Until it does, enjoy some of the free complimentary Lifeforce boobs below.
It hasn’t been proven, but I might have a lot of readers who are 6-years-old and younger. And for all of my youngsters out there, who now that I think about it shouldn’t be reading my blog, have I got a treat for you! If you want to scare the shit out of your babysitter around Halloween, you can now get your grubby hands on a replica of the clown mask that a young Michael Myers wore in the original Halloween.
All jokes aside, this is a mask for adults and is an adult size mask. And it comes in three different versions: clean, weathered, and bloody. The one in the image is the weathered version. It’s hand painted onto very strong plastic and a protective coat is also applied. The detail is pretty amazing, although the price is a bit steep at $60. It does include free shipping though and no two masks will be the same since they’re handmade. If you’re interested in picking one up, you can do so right HERE. Happy Halloween!
One of my favorite sequels to the original A Nightmare On Elm Street is easily A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. And one of my favorite scenes from that sequel is when Freddy turns Phillip into a human marionette. But before Freddy does that, he himself is a little marionette before he turns into actual Freddy. And guess what? Someone has created a replica of ‘Marionette Freddy’ and is selling him on eBay!
Now, if you go to the eBay listing HERE, you can see more pics. Unfortunately, not much more info is given (other than the buyer uses bad punctuation), so you’re buying a bit blindly here unless you want to contact the seller. From the pics though, this looks like a top notch replicate of the marionette in the movie. The price is a bit steep at $390, but given the detail and time it most likely took to make this – it might be worth it. If I were to buy this, I would be slightly worried that it would come alive in the middle of the night and I would wind up on top of the roof at my building falling to my untimely slumber death……..
Well, it’s the summertime and as the late Glenn Frey would say…..the heat is on! There are a lot of ways to beat the heat: a dip in the pool, rubbing ice cubes all over your body, eating some delicious ice cream, and buying a promotional 30 Days Of Night beanie.
Yeah – probably not going to really keep you cool, but you will be really stylish while you’re dripping buckets of sweat from wearing a beanie in 100 degree weather. Although uneven, I actually enjoyed 2007’s vampire flick 30 Days Of Night. So much so, that I almost clicked ‘Buy It Now‘ on the eBay listing for this promotional beanie.
If you are a bigger 30 Days Of Night fan than me, then head on over to the listing HERE and check it out. The asking price of $8 isn’t too shabby for what it is. I’ve spent money on a lot worse off of eBay before. And to get you in the mood, watch one of my favorite scenes from the movie below and feel free to shout out your best vampire screech while you’re at it:
